Political groups backed by conservative mega-donors Charles and David Koch on Monday criticized President Trump’s recent comment that “DACA is dead,” saying the president needs to compromise on a deal that helps immigrants brought into the country illegally as children.

The three groups — Freedom Partners, Americans for Prosperity and The LIBRE Initiative — put out statements on Monday urging Trump to reach a permanent deal that trades funding for his border wall for a “permanent solution” for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients.

Trump struck down DACA — the Obama program that gives immigrants protection from deportation and allows them to work — last year and called on Congress to come up with a permanent solution.

The group’s comments come one day after the president took to Twitter to say that Republicans should no longer make a DACA deal with Democrats.
